Now I Understand

Why everyone calls John Howard, Steve's mentor. Give a listen to this propaganda piece on Youtube. Around the 5 minute mark (or 3:08 if the video counts down), Howard and the fembot presenter start in on security. It sent a chill up my spine. If you ever want an example of friendly fascism, this is it. Howard and the fembot are all smiles but the message is clear -- We know this is a pain and an intrusion, but shut up and keep your heads down. Don't embarrass us or there will be consequences. Blame any disruptions on protesters and remember, we know what's best for you. It is the kind of message that always makes me wonder why libertarians flock to conservative parties.

Finally, a note to Australian protesters. If there are incidents at the summit, check the violent offender's boots. The chances will be good that they will be police issued.
